Learning from our experience: A guide to participative systematisation
MetadataShow full item record
This book is based not only on a theoretical framework, but also on our actual experiences participating in and facilitating systematisation processes in Latin America (Nicaragua, Mexico, El Salvador, Ecuador) and Africa (Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania). We have tried to reflect on the lessons that we learned as a part of our experiences – good decisions and mistakes, doubts and questions. Given that this process creates a base on which to build our learned experiences, we hope that this approach for participative systematisation will be analysed and understood in the context of your own perceptions, emotions, interests, practices and work experience.In order to facilitate this process, it is important to create participative and democratic spaces in which decisions can be made and responsibilities assumed. An important element of this approach is acceptance of and respect for the participants’ subjective, personal processes. The conflicts, uneasiness, doubts, joys, sorrow, frustrations, etc. that result from an experience should be understood as legitimate expressions.
